Re: Hello fellow Lunar lovers!

Welcome! It's always nice to meet another fan. I need to play through most of SSH myself and appreciate the art.

Re: LN Book Club! Currently about: 1984, (we can add more)

I really should read 1984 for basic cultural literacy. We were given a choice between it and Brave New World, and I chose the latter.

I've certainly heard about it, including the language, so I'd be interested in reading what you say.

Re: Our cat is pretty great.

"Prel" was a random combo of sounds that Jenner put together 'cause it sounded right. That seems as good a reason as any. Do vets ask also? Our original vet used to refer to us as "the people with the cats with the funny names." This is our bunny boy, Aliquot. He is the softest ...

Re: Activism, Social Justice, Protests and you: The Political Discussion Containment Thread

The news about the science march is troubling, but completely unsurprising. The lab I work in (as admin support; I'm not a scientist myself) has always been fairly diverse (at one point I was dealing with hiring paperwork for people of six different nationalities, including Iranian and Nepalese), bu...

Re: Our cat is pretty great.

I have a cat who is as soft as a bunny, but it's hard to convey that softness in pictures. Also, I think I can't attach pics larger than 256K and would need to resize most of them to reach that... but maybe some of my earlier pics would work. I suppose I should learn to use picture hosting and links...

Re: Night in the Woods

Haven't played the game so I can't speak to it, but after reading the spoiler I concur on the need for cute pictures. Most of mine are too big to attach though.

Re: Me summarizing TSS to my niece.

I'm going to resist (for now, at least) correcting all the minor inaccuracies and just say that Jennering is a highly-evocative verb. =D

Re: What to update?

Oh, and I was recently asked on Twitter for a link to a list of differences between TSS and its remakes. It's a weird thing for us not to have up, certainly, though I'm sure there are such pages elsewhere. Thought maybe I'd draft one in a post for LNetians to add to. (unfinished-projects++)

Re: What to update?

I scanned the entire Lunar I+II artbook a few months ago (though I think I need to redo one section). I haven't considered doing that with the SSS one, because I'd have to take it apart (the one I scanned already had a loose binding so I did take that one apart; I'd bought it for that purpose). I ha...

Re: Send in the clowns...

FFXV's product placement is mainly visual -- a store window has the Amex logo on it, and the folding chairs in the camps say Coleman. Vivienne Westwood is specifically named as the designer of a garment and as having a store (and that might be a little obscure to a lot of players). The glaring excep...

Re: In this thread we fix Lunar: Dragon Song.

Way back when I first started reading websites (meaning, when I had a connection that was faster than 2400 baud...) I read a bunch of WD's RPG Critic reviews. I will never forget that he knocked a full point off of Majora's Mask solely because it didn't have Ocarina's fishing game in it. Seriously.

Re: Lunarthreads app and/or Official Lunar-Net Instagram page

This is reminding me that I still need to send you those magazine scans I showed you at MAGfest. It's definitely more olds than news, but there are a few images in there that would be fun to post.

Re: Send in the clowns...

Yeah, when I first played TSS the funniest line to me was the book in Damon's library that said "Video games will eventually rot the minds of all they enslave." But fourth-wall-breaking is a little stale now. On the other hand, I still find Kung-Fu Mauri with the action grip, or whatever i...

Re: Back again guys!

Heh. FF8 and FF12 are the two I've most wanted to play. My interest in 8 isn't because of the characters, though; I've seen just enough of it (maybe 2/3rds, a long time ago) to find them irritating. I did like 12's characters in general (and the fact that the viewpoint character is not the protagoni...

Therefore, I was trying to use my Devil's advocate opinion as a means for showing that these types of discussions do more harm than good. Or to put it another way, you were using your Devil's advocate opinion as a means of doing harm. Or don't you think dismissive statements like "Ladies, Trum...

Re: I just realized I have mod powers.

This is pretty much unrelated to everything else, but one afternoon when I was in, I dunno, high school maybe my mom rescued a largish snake from the dog and, being already late to pick me up from school, put it in the coat closet next to the front door. I'm glad she told me about this in the car, b...

Re: Send in the clowns...

A lot of lines that are pop refs of one sort or another will tend to stick out at odd times. Lighter, optional NPC conversations are one thing, big dramatic moments with sudden lines that jolt the player out of the scene are another. (There are many reasons why I dislike Zophar's line "Tell me,...
